Biggie Smalls was one of the illest to ever do it. So the world had no choice but to respect Jay-Z as a major contender after hearing him go toe-to-toe with Frank White on “Brooklyn's Finest.” There's no doubt both emcees were quietly competing against each other, but this competitive spirit only brought out their best. Loaded with quotables, “Brooklyn's Finest” found Biggie taking playful jabs about his wife Faith Evans and 2Pac while Jay was laughing off junior varsity chumps.

Unfortunately, this would be the first of only three collaborations they'd record prior to Big's demise. There's no doubt who would've been watching the throne had Big's life not been cut short. R.I.P. B.I.G.
